Today we will be making a catapult, with this catapult you can shoot small objects, like cotton balls at your friends. This is a very simple project so if you aren't very good at DIY this is a good pick for you. It will take you only around 5-10 minutes. So let's get started!
You will need
- Popsicle sticks (preferably the large ones) 12x
- Rubberbands 3x
- And your creativity
- Hot glue
- Bottle cap x1
Step 1: Make the Base
For starters, you need to make the base, take 10 popsicle sticks and tie them together with rubber bands at one side.
Step 2: Step Two
Then on the other side where you didn't tie it, put in one popsicle through the first one on the bottom.
Step 3: Part 3
Then tie the other side with another rubber band.
Step 4: Step 4
Take your last popsicle stick and put it diagonally from the one on the bottom then tie it with rubber bands.
Step 5: Step 5
Use hot glue to attach the bottle cap on the popsicle stick, this would be the holder for the object you want to throw.
Step 6: Your Done
Great Job, you're done.
Have fun playing with your new catapult
